Re: Asking PG to check PD status of unrecorded Oz books - up

Greg, I think I proofed almost every page of the Wishing Horse at some level. I will keep my eye out for Captain Salt. These are fun books and a blast to work on.

The clearance has been approved. If anyone wants to work from the scans before this gets into PG, let me know and I'll make the scans available in a cbz file.

Re: Asking PG to check PD status of unrecorded Oz books - up

I'm going to request scans of any of the OZ books that are listed at the wiki as in the public domain. I don't know what I'll actually get. I'll post here if I get any. If I can get some I'll see about clearing them with PG.

I did one. Let me hunt it up.
